Reusing solid oak planks for closet - nail or glue?
I recently remodeled the master bath and part of that process was removing about 40 sq ft of oak hardwood flooring. The original tile was still underneath, with a subfloor powdered in, sheet of plastic, then the oak nailed to the subfloor. I managed to get most of the pieces up without any significant damage, and numbered them all so I know the order they were laid in.
I also recently moved my HVAC up into the attic, and reclaimed a closet approxmately 4 feet deep by 3 feet wide, which has just the concrete slab floor in it.
Apparently the economy is great, and flooring companies around me are doing great, because everyone says the job is too small, and they're just interested in refinishing my entire house. So instead, I want to use some of that bathroom flooring for the closet.
I don't want to buy a powder gun, so I'm thinking I'll glue the subfloor down to the slab first. Here are my questions for the rest:
I would glue it. In a space that small you would have to face nail almost all if you nail it in.
What do I do about the moisture barrier? Is it not as much of a problem on a slab that has cured for 30 years or should I slap some RedGuard on the subfloor or something?
